Neither defense has proved it can stop the other team's offense so far. Tight End Austin Seferian-Jenkins hauled in his second touchdown of the day to tie the game 14-14. Jenkins is leading the team with five catches and 31-yard receiving yards.
The Huskies have depended on the steady running style of Chris Polk. Polk has rushed for 67 yards on 15 carries so far in this game. Besides Seferian-Jenkins five receptions and a catch from Polk, the Huskies receivers have yet to record a reception in this game. Sarkisian could be calling it safe, as Montana has already thrown an interception.
The Beavers offense scored a touchdown at the end of the first quarter in a five play 77 yard drive. Running back Markus Wheaton broke out for a 56-yard run on the second play from scrimmage for the Beavers. Two plays later Sean Mannion found Micah Hatfield for a six-yard touchdown.
